They lock up for a clean break before Finn goes for an armbar that Pete is which to get out of before Finn takes Pete down and the two exchange wrist locks before Finn takes Pete down repeatedly. Finn escapes an armbar attempt by Pete before Pete backs Finn into the ropes and hits Finn with shoulder shots to the jaw before Pete focuses on joint manipulation. Pete snaps the arm of Finn and bends his fingers before Finn rolls free and Pete goes back to the fingers of Finn before stomping his ribs and Finn stomps his foot. Finn takes Pete down and focuses on his leg before locking in a half crab and transitioning to a short leg scissors before Pete locks in a front face lock. Pete applies a standing guillotine before suplexing Finn and the two exchange strikes until Finn goes back at the ankle and clotheslines Pete for two before hitting several knee drops. Finn locks in an STF before Pete drives his fingers into the mat to get free and Finn chops and chokes Pete in the corner before choking him in the ropes. Finn takes out the knee of Pete and Pete rocks him with a headbutt before hitting a sit-out powerbomb for two before Finn hits a back stabber into a reverse DDT. Finn hits a shotgun dropkick before going up top and Pete counters a Coup de Grace into a triangle choke before Finn gets to the ropes for the break before Pete lets go and Finn is unconscious. Pete counters the 1916 before snapping the fingers of Finn and Finn drops him with forearms before stomping Pete who hits the Bitter End for a near fall. Pete then stomps both hands of Finn repeatedly and Finn counters the Bitter End into 1916 for a near fall before hitting a jumping stomp and the Coup de Grace into 1916 for the pin and the win.

Winner: Finn Bälor retains his NXT Championship by defeating Pete Dunne via pinfall.

Oney and Danny come out after the match and attack Finn with Pete before the Kings of NXT are ran off by the Undisputed Era. We then end the show with Finn standing with UE before Adam Cole superkicks Finn. Kyle O'Reilly gets angry at Adam but is superkicked too. A shocked Roderick Strong is left alone in the ring as Adam Cole heads to the back.

The team that had been together since August 2017 has seemingly fallen apart. No answers have surfaced as to why Adam did what he did. Nevertheless, he most certainly shocked the system.
